Operation Flashpoint 2 - Summer 2009 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YofVL4UyEM0

Mafia II - October 2009 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVkHraUDDpk&feature=related

I thought ARMA was the new OPF2? Or is it like FM and CM, as in the company has split etc and made different titles? Defo like the look of both though and of COD6 will be good. Heard rumours that Half Life 2: Episode 3 is out December 09 but only rumours...

E3 is only like 3 weeks away now. That will be when we find out all the new games coming out for all the formats. Will be a really good one this year because rumour has it that Sony Microsoft and Nintendo have a lot of titles to show. Microsoft said "They will empty the bank at e3" so will be interesting to see what that means.

Games i'll be getting for sure are Fight Night Round 4 as i love boxing obviously. Mafia 2 will be quality. Eidos will be announcing Thief 4 on 11th may so will get that. Gran Turismo 5 if it comes this year. Forza 3 for sure. Operation Flashpoint 2. Diablo 3.
The game i want the most is Alan Wake, that game will probably set the new benchmark in terms of graphics and physics for games, only problem is i doubt it will come this year, been in development over 5 years already!
Also wouldn't mind Assasins Creed 2 but i have still not finished the first one!

God, are people still using consoles ? I don't think I've played a game in months, and I've got 4 or 5 still in the shrinkwrap (including Xmas 2007's Skate and Bioshock, FFS !!!).

I appear to have had a life of some kind. Worrying.

I haven't turned my Xbox on since November last year now. Been playing with the PC/myself instead.

Modern Warfare 2 & Final Fantasy 13 are definites, then whatever gets the most hype after those 2 :) though ARMA 2 & Mafia 2 look quite good.

Final Fantasy 13 is the only "definite" for me.

Final Fantasy wont be coming until 2010 at the earliest. It should in theory be released in Japan in december this year. They then work on changing it for the other places i.e hire actors etc. Number 12 was released in Japan in march 2006, but didnt come out until feb 2007 here.
So personally i think we are probably looking at 2011 before we get our hands on it sadly.

Bring on Nathan Drake and Uncharted 2 - Among Thieves. There won't be many better than this in 09 if the last one is anything to go by.

And this of course, should be an epic.
After looking it up Infamous also seems like a shout.

Surely if it's just translation, they can do that concurrently with the Japanese version? I thought with FFX they added some extras into the game for EU & US versions (dark aeons & Penance) which might have delayed non-Japanese launches.

For now I'm sticking with April 2010 (ok so still not this year) before I start learning Japanese:

Yoshinori Kitase (producer) - said they were keen to reduce the localisation time, this time round, specifically with Europe in mind. Aiming at pre-winter 2010 release over here.

http://finalfantasy-xiii.net/2009/05/05/final-fantasy-xiii-coming-to-europe-before-winter-2010.html

I doubt its ability to transfer to the 360 though, think they may have made a mistake there, despite the fact i own a 360 and want this game.

Personally i think we should get the release (and all other games too) with the US, since the only reason it takes longer to get to Europe is the localisation into all the different countries with different languages. But because of PAL/NTSC formats thatll never happen

Only ever played FF once an not really bothered. It's COD modern warfare that moves me !!! COD WAW is **** IMO. But Modern warfare 2 should be awesome.

Plus can't wait for a Fallout 4 (if they bother) Fallout 3 was F'n Brilliant.

Just remember we will be the best team in League One when you do it this year MLG! Gillett will be the midfield lynchpin and Gobern, McLaggon and Mills will be the nuts too. :-)

And McGoldrick will be a lot better too ;)
And Davis come to think of it (if he's still here). His shot stopping and reflexes should be 20.

Could be even better than 3 if they allow you to carry on playing after the main story is finished.

Never buy games when they are newly released. Paying up to 40 is a f**king rip off IMO. I'll generally wait until they are less than 15.

On the basis of that COD:4 and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

Matthew Le God

Why not? :axe:

Because the 1-20 scale is on a world level. If I gave him 20 it would mean he had the best shot stopping and reflexes out of any goalkeeper in the world. Which is clearly wrong. Also if I gave hime 20 for those two things his ratings due to the database system involved would have to come down in other areas.

Don't worry though, I will still be improving him :)

You can with 3, as long as you have Broken Steel. I'm enjoying doing that right now.
